is a tsa agent themselves. we don't know what the situation is or any reports. you're right. that's what happened and when it happened as far as we can tell at this point. >> mike, stand by with me, pete williams our justice correspondent here. pete, what do we know from tsa or fbi. >> without saying where the information comes from at this point, talking to a variety of authorities, a large number of agencies including lapd, which i believe is in charge here, it does seem like it's over is the best information we have at this point. it's very sketchy information back in washington. it does seem like it's over. they are trying to figure out precisely who was shot. it does appear -- initial reports say and we'll be cautious to say these are the initial reports. it's going to take a few minutes to work out exactly what happened. it seems like at least two people were shot. the man with the rifle who shot apparently a tsa employee. that's the person you saw, we believe, being put into the ambulance. then the person with the gun himself was shot. so we know of only two shooting victims, but
to be an employee-focused event having to do with tsa, so while it is not good, it's not some huge terrible random incident. i have heard radio reports coming in, chagrinned and inconvenienced travelers who are stuck in the airport loop and some who managed to get out and go to another airport, but i don't get the sense that this is being taken as a huge terrible incident. >> i want to update those of you tuning in as to what you are seeing on your screen. this is the lax, at around 9:30 this morning l.a. time there are reports that a gunman walked into terminal three at the airport and opened fire. the initial reports indicate the gunman had a gun, a rifle. we some images that showed what appeared to be a rifle. the official word from the officials in los angeles is one person has been taken into custody, and there have been multiple injuries. now knbc talking to a witness over the telephone a short time ago. we want you to listen to what he said. >> i was in the virgin america terminal, waiting in line for security on the upper mezzanine, and we were just standing there in line, and somebody sta
people were shot. a tsa agent was killed. the gunman was taken into custody. police believe the gunman acted alone. >> we believe at this point that there was a lone shooter, that he acted at least right now he was the only person armed in this incident. >> brian rooney joins us on the phone from los angeles international airport. give us the latest. the latest information that you have from the scree the scene. >> reporter: the biggest question right now who the shooter is. obviously officers know but they haven't told us who the shooter is. he shot his way through the screening area of the terminal and went into terminal three where there was a gun battle. they did not say how many shots might have been fired, but six people were injured and taken to the hospital. right now the airport is basically shutdown. i have not seen a flight landing in quite awhile now. flights certainly are not going out. the planes are on hold all over the country. now thousands of passengers have been streaming out of the airport, walking along a major avenue outside l.a.x. with their rolling bag looking f
-in tsa where you put your, take your shoes off and put your bags through the x-ray or whatever. it wasn't past that spot. >> so nick, what happened here after the shooting? was there an incident? were people questioned? >> basically we were in the upstairs area with the shooter or, and it sounded, by the way, i think i heard a total of maybe eight or ten shots fired, in two bursts, so it sounded like there was just one person and there was no bombs or anything else. it sounded just like a gun, the same caliber gun each time, and i basically, i mean everyone dropped to the floor and started crawling along the ground, just abandoning their suitcases but there was nowhere to go. you couldn't go back because the guy was down on the escalator and couldn't go forward because it was security. luckily i was just by an emergency exit and i just ran out onto the tarmac where the planes are and a few other people ran in the same direction and then -- >> were you actually detained at some point and questioned by -- >> yes. >> what happened? >> i was running across the tarmac to get away from whatev
there are looking for more clues in the attack and what led a lone gunman to target tsa officers. >>> right now, the virginia and new jersey governors races, are making a final push for votes. we look at what tomorrow's elections could tell us about the 2016 presidential race. >>> and right now, we're waiting for today's white house briefing to get under way. the press secretary jay carney likely to face more questions about obama care and the political tell-all book "double rap." >>> hello, i'm wolf blitzer reporting from washington. more on the investigation into the fatal shooting over at the los angeles international airport. 23-year-old paul ciancia. police say he's the shooter. he remains in critical condition today, unable to speak with investigators. but we are starting to learn more about ciancia. and possibly some of his motives. we're also learning more about what happened just before the shooting, from someone who knew ciancia and his roommates. >> he asked one of the roommates if he could have a ride to the airport. >> why did he need a ride? >> he said he was going back home, eith
knowledge this is the first time that a tsa officer has ever been killed in the line of duty. the man i spoke to is the president of the american federation of government employees. he just released a statement. i want to read it to you. he says, "we are sickened by reports of today's shooting at the los angeles international airport. our sincerest thoughts and prayer goes out to our passengers and the tsa officers killed or injured in this heinous act. thank you to all of our brave tsa's who put their lives on the line every day to keep the flying public safe." remember tsa officers are unarmed, so when this gunman approached them at l.a.x. and just started shooting at them, they had no way of defending themselves. they were entirely reliant on the airport police and the lapd. those are the officers that ultimately took this shooter down. it will be interesting to see in the weeks to come whether or not the security surrounding the tsa check points at airports around the country are going to be beefed up after what just happened at l.a.x. now one more thing i want to talk about, flight
tsa officer killed in the line of duty in the agency's history. two additional agents were wounded. joining me from austin, texas, is the chairman of the house homeland security committee, michael mccall. congressman, thank you very much for joining us. i think in the aftermath of this, the question i hear most often is, why did he do this. what do you know about that? i know you've been able to see some of the notes he wrote. what do you think the motivation was here? >> i think mental illness again, like the navy yard shooter that we saw. the suicide note i read talks a lot about killing tsa agents. he said, "if i just kill one, my mission is accomplished." and unfortunately, he did do that the other day. the other thing he wanted to talk about is how easy it is to bring a gun into an airport and do something like he did. my sympathies go out to the hernandez family and the other victims. this tragic day -- as you mentioned, he's the first tsa agent, officer to be killed in the line of duty. >> it's our understanding that much of the literature he had on him was anti-government,
of like the navy yard shooter that we saw. the suicide note that i read talks a lot about killing tsa agents, and if he said if i just kill one my mission is accomplished and unfortunately, he did do that the other day and the other thing he wanted to talk about is how easy it is to bring a gun into an airport and do something just like he did and my simple thoughs go out to the hernandez family and the other victims, this tragic day. he's the first tsa agent officer to be killed in the line of duty. >> congressman, it's our understanding that much of the literature he had on him was both anti-government, anti-tsa but you're telling me his intent was suicide after he did damage? >> well, it's clearly one of those notes that reads i'm going to go kill people, and i don't want to kill civilians, with the idea that he's going to die at the end of this. the other thing that i think was equally as tragic was that his family in new jersey had notified new jersey local authorities, who then in turn notified the local l.a. police who actually visited the suspect's home the morning of the shoo
and the shooting at lax which left one tsa agent dead and questions about airport security across the country. flights have been delayed and canceled as a result of the situation. officials at lax say all flights in and out of the airport are still delayed. with us now from a welcome back to the show. very good to see you. i read that the person responsible for this brought a rifle through a security checkpoint, which makes me wonder tonight even if the first tee off -- tsa officer to die in the line of duty today, are we safe? if you can bring a gun, and assault rifle through a security checkpoint, are we safe? >> well, he brought it to a security checkpoint, like a crowded shopping center just as easily. there is no defense against someone who was to blast his way through something. police know that this is a crazy person, not a terrorist. i do not know how we can defend ourselves against that. i really don't. gerri: cold comfort because it is really just a road mafor a terrorist at the end of the day. lots of problems going on now with flights all over the country. how serious will this be
